Forum: forums Subject: Trouble uploading via FTP

I've successfully put some albums on the archive before, but having problems with the latest one. After checking out and logging in with my IA login, trying to add content produces the follow error:

lftp myselfATgmail.com@ia310824.us.archive.org:/PhasingDeathViruzedEp> mput 01*
mput: Access failed: 553 Prohibited file name: 01 Helplezz.flac

Same problem with JPG, MP3....

Ideas?

Sometimes it stalls for a while while trying to make a data connection until the control connection drops, and then on reconnect the 'Prohibited file name' message is promptly produced.

Same problem using lftp/ncftp/ftp.

it's because no spaces in filenames are allowed.
